Q u i c k
R e f e r e n c e
Introduction
The Phaser P370/P470 Keyless Radio Frequency (RF) scanners
bring new flexibility and economy to data capture and data
management in both industrial and retail operations. The scanners
communicate with the host computer through radio transmission
instead of through a cable. The RF scanner can scan and transmit
without a physical cable from as far away as 100 feet (30.5
meters) without a direct line of sight. This allows the scanner to be
taken where the work is, whether on the loading dock, the plant
floor, the warehouse, or the POS checkout area. There are several
versions available:
•
•
•
P370: cordless industrial scanner
P370 ALR: cordless industrial long range scanner
P470: cordless retail scanner.

Charging the Scanner in the Cradle
To charge the scanner, insert the
scanner into the cradle so the nose
of the scanner and tip of the handle
seat into the receptacles.
The battery charges automatically. A
full charge of a depleted battery
takes approximately 3-1/2 hours.
The charge status indicator light on
the back of the cradle blinks then
becomes solid when the battery is
fully charged.

Powering Up the Scanner
To turn the scanner on pull the trigger. The scanner is brought out
of sleep mode and into scanning mode.
Scanning
Consult the P370/P470 Keyless RF Scanners Product Reference
Guide for programming instructions. If you need assistance,
contact your local supplier or the Symbol Support Center.
1. Ensure the battery is
charged.
2. Ensure the bar code is in
the correct scanning range.
3. Aim and press the trigger.
When the scanner has
read the symbol:

you hear a beep
the LED turns green
the red laser turns off.

Q u i c k
R e f e r e n c e
Hold at an angle
Do not hold the scanner directly over the bar code. Laser light
reflecting directly back into the scanner from the bar code is known
as specular reflection. This specular reflection can make decoding
difficult.
You can tilt the scanner up to 65° forward or back and achieve a
successful decode. Simple practice quickly shows what
tolerances to work within.

The scan beam must cross every bar and space on the symbol (as in the left bar code below).
The larger the symbol, the farther away you should hold the

Changing the Battery
Once a battery is fully charged, it generally lasts up to 10 hours
without being returned to the cradle. By returning it to the cradle
during the day, this time is extended.
If a significant decrease in battery life is noticed and does not
correspond to increased usage, consider replacing the battery.
Removing the Battery
1. Slide the battery release latch down using the center indent
on the latch and remove the battery compartment cover.
It may be useful to use a coin for extra leverage.
2. Slide the battery toward the bottom of the scanner and then,
using the pull tab, pull the bottom of the battery back and out
of the scanner.

(D) Product Service Products may be serviced or manufactured with parts, components, or subassemblies
that originate from returned products and that have been tested as meeting applicable specifications for
equivalent new material and Products. The sole obligation of Seller for defective hardware Products is limited
to repair or replacement (at Seller’s option) on a “return to service depot” basis with prior Seller authorization.
Customer is responsible for shipment to the Seller and assumes all costs and risks associated with this
transportation; return shipment to the Customer will be at Seller's expense. Customer shall be responsible
for return shipment charges for product returned where Seller determines there is no defect (“No Defect
Found”), or for product returned that Seller determines is not eligible for warranty repair. No charge will be
made to Buyer for replacement parts for warranty repairs. Seller is not responsible for any damage to or loss

Product.
(E) Original Warranty Period Except for the warranty applying solely to the repaired component arising from
a repair service as provided in Section C above, the aforementioned provisions do not extend the original
warranty period of any Product that had either been repaired or replaced by Seller.
(F) Warranty Provisions The above warranty provisions shall not apply to any Product (i) which has been
repaired, tampered with, altered or modified, except by Seller’s authorized service personnel; (ii) in which the
defects or damage to the Product result from normal wear and tear, misuse, negligence, improper storage,
water or other liquids, battery leakage, use of parts or accessories not approved or supplied by Symbol, or
failure to perform operator handling and scheduled maintenance instructions supplied by Seller; (iii) which
has been subjected to unusual physical or electrical stress, abuse, or accident, or forces or exposure beyond
normal use within the specified operational and environmental parameters set forth in the applicable Product
specification; nor shall the above warranty provisions apply to any expendable or consumable items, such
as batteries, supplied with the Product.
EXCEPT FOR THE WARRANTY OF TITLE AND THE EXPRESS WARRANTIES STATED ABOVE,
